I watched this last night on "Girls Night Out" and just had to share. I just love how Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill do justice to such a beautiful song.
This is my all time favorite song ~ it was also my Daddy's. I'm crying as I type this post ... that's the powerful impact this song has on me.
Dad always told us when we were kids that if there was ever a song that we NEEDED to know ... this was it.
40 years ago ... Mom had the verses of the song typed out and pinned up on the basement wall next to the washing machine. I think she put it there so we would see it on Saturday mornings while being in the basement doing laundry.
Now whenever I hear it I think of my Dad; but more importantly I remember the day he passed away and could just envision him standing before our Heavenly Father ... bowed in humble adoration. On earth, Daddy's temporary home, he was crippled and without feeling from his hips down ... but that day ... I know he walked and did so without pain and bowed before God singing his praises, "My God, How Great Thou Art!"
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
